Couple ‘tried to sell baby for £17’

A California couple face child endangerment charges after police said they tried to sell their six-month-old baby for $25 (£17) outside a Walmart store.

Salinas police spokesman, officer Lalo Villegas, said that Patrick Fousek and Samantha Tomasini were arrested on Wednesday morning, hours after Fousek allegedly approached two women outside Walmart and asked if they would like to purchase his child.

The women initially thought Fousek was joking, but when he became persistent, they became suspicious and reported it to police.

Fousek and Tomasini were arrested at their home.
